I want to start by saying a huge thanks for joining Team Angela - I’m really excited about this campaign and humbled by how many people have signed up already.
Today, MP nominations closed in the contest. I’m proud to have so much support from across the Parliamentary Labour Party, and from our MEPs, but now it’s over to our members and affiliates.
Over the weeks ahead, I’ll be speaking to members the length and breadth of the UK about how we can get Labour back into government, so we can do what we all joined the party to do - change people’s lives and communities for the better. But I can’t do that without your support.
If you signed up just to let me know you’ll back me, that’s great (and thank you!) but if you’d like to get more involved, here are three ways you can help:
1. Support me in your Constituency Labour Party. Let me know you’ll attend your CLP meeting to support me: https://angelaraynerfordeputy.com/clpnominations/
2. Donate to Team Angela - I’m a working class trade union activist and don’t have pots of cash or loads of rich donors. Anything you can spare to help the campaign will enable us to spread our message even further. Click here to donate: https://angelaraynerfordeputy.com/donate/
3. Share your thoughts – a good leader listens, so today I’ve launched a survey for members to give your views on the General Election and, more broadly, how we organise as a Party. Click here to take part: https://angelaraynerfordeputy.com/survey
I’m excited about this campaign and the opportunity to travel around the country to speak to members again - it’s one of my favourite things to do and I look forward to seeing you all soon!
